The English language can be a bit of an oddball and here are a couple of amusing quotes to illustrate the fact.
Here is a quote by Thomas Berger, the author of Little Big Man. It is based on the quote by George Mallory, a mountain climber in the early 1900s. A reporter asked Mallory why he climbed Mount Everest, and he responded, “Because it’s there.”
Everyone knows that fairy tales are true.
Great quote by Mark Twain:
So true, so true…
You’ll be seeing a number of Mark Twain quotes around here. To me, just about anything out of his mouth is absolute genius.
